For years, Mandy has been in my ear to do the Sydney Harbour Bridge walk. Today her wish came true. We woke up super early to time our walk to catch the sunrise. We chose to start the walk from Milson’s Point and finish at Circular Quay. We had the perfect plan. We would arrive at Milson’s Point to start the walk and stroll over the bridge as soon as sunrise showed its face. We would finish in Circular Quay. Naturally we would be keen for breakfast so we planned to jump on the ferry to Kirribilli and have breakfast and a coffee at Anvil Coffee Co. The plan was there from the get-go for a great day in Sydney.
Step 1: Make The Most Of It And Get Up Early
I know it can be an effort to get up in time for sunrise but Sydney really does do a good sunrise. Whether you are on holidays or live close, the early start is worth it.
Step 2: Getting Onto The Sydney Harbour Bridge Walk
We accessed the walk from Milson’s Point and headed south towards the city. The other entry/exit points are The Rocks, Circular Quay (via lift) and Macquarie St. Once on you can lap up and enjoy the views of Sydney City and Sydney Harbour.
Step 3: Make It Fit Into Your Day, Or Make A Day Of It.
We walked over the bridge to Circular Quay then got a ferry and walked back to where we began. Try to use the walk as transport to end up where you want to spend the morning.
Step 4: Reward Yourself With Something Special At The End
After seeing a beautiful sunrise over the water and Sydney Opera House, we wandered down to Circular Quay and caught a ferry to Kirribilli. On the wharf here is a small little coffee shop, Anvil Coffee Co. It’s stunning location, great coffee and the favourite dish of our morning, Arabian Eggs, made our morning that little bit more special.
Why The Sydney Harbour Bridge Walk Is An Awesome Experience
Besides the fact that it’s one of the best views in Sydney, it’s free, requires no booking and can be done at your own leisure. We loved it so much, we’ll definitely be doing it again soon!
